U.S. Open Round 1: 1st tee, 2:14 p.m.

U.S. Open Round 2: 10th tee, 8:29 a.m.

Marc Leishman (No. 35)

  • Last start: T-15: the Memorial Tournament (PGA TOUR)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: T-18

Marc Leishman has missed the cut in three of his five U.S. Open starts but his T-18 a year ago gives him a nice memory heading into Erin Hills. He played three solid rounds at Oakmont but a third-round 77 cost him a chance at a better finish. He’s played solidly in 2017, including a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He’s been in the top 15 in two of his last three tournaments and has come close to winning a major championship before, losing a playoff at the Open Championship in 2015.

Pat Perez (No. 42)

  • Last start: T-19: the Memorial Tournament (PGA TOUR)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: DNP

Pat Perez is making the most of his comeback. After sitting out nearly a year with a shoulder injury, he’s gotten himself into the top 50 in the world with consistent play. In 15 starts in 2017, Perez has three top-10 finishes and eight top 20s. This is the fifth U.S. Open start for Perez and his first since Torrey Pines in 2008, which was his best with a T-36 finish.

Si Woo Kim (No. 32)

  • Last start: WD: the Memorial Tournament (PGA TOUR)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: DNP

Si Woo Kim hasn’t exactly had the follow-up he was looking for after his life-changing win at THE PLAYERS Championship last month. He’s been dealing with some back issues, which caused him to withdraw from the Byron Nelson before it began and he missed the cut at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational before another withdrawal from the Memorial in the third round with an ankle injury. It was the sixth mid-round withdrawal of his young career and fifth of the 2017 season.

U.S. Open Round 2: 1st tee, 8:29 a.m.

Brad Dalke (a) (No. 1927 — No. 61-World Amateur Golf Ranking)

  • Last start: T-51: NCAA D1 Championship-Stroke
  • 2016 U.S. Open: DNP

Brad Dalke is in the field due to his runner-up finish at the U.S. Amateur — he lost to Curtis Luck, who lost his exemption status by turning professional — and this is his first U.S. Open and second major championship appearance. Dalke missed the cut at The Masters in April.

Wesley Bryan (No. 41)

  • Last start: T-48: Dean & DeLuca Invitational (PGA TOUR)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: DNP

Wesley Bryan has had a crazy 2017. He started the year by three consecutive cuts and then tied for 42nd in Phoenix. He then reeled off two T-4s and a T-7 but then fell back with a solo 69th at the Arnold Palmer and then a tie for 62nd in Puerto Rico. Then he won the RBC Heritage and promptly missed two cuts following his win before tying for 48th at the Dean & DeLuca. Where he ends up this week is anyone’s guess.

Brendan Steele (No. 53)

  • Last start: T-57: the Memorial Tournament (PGA TOUR)
  • 2016 U.S. Open: T-15

Two-time PGA TOUR winner Brendan Steele is gearing up for his third U.S. Open start and has played the weekend in every event but two in the last year. Granted, those two were the Open Championship and the PGA Championship but that’s 19 cuts in a row for Steele and he also has his T-15 finish from a year ago to look back on fondly. He’s not a flashy guy but it’s a top-20 finish here and a T-6 there and he has the patience to work well at a U.S. Open.
